In the heat of the Salt Lake High School boundary decision, parents vowed to transfer their children to other school districts rather than send them to the newly assigned schools. At one time 900 out-of-district transfers were predicted.
But the transfers just didn't happen.School officials said of the 25 requested out-of-district transfers, 21 were registered in Salt Lake District schools this week. District spokesman Jan Keller said the other four may or may not be in the district. Officials haven't been able to track them down to verify where they are attending school.
Recently, the Salt Lake Board of Education adopted a new transfer policy between schools within the district to meet unusual or exceptional need cases. Keller said 19 transfers have been granted.
Eleven have transferred from East to Highland, one from East to West, four from West to East, two from Highland to East, one from Highland to West and none from West to Highland.
